So here's what I've really been up to.

We're expecting a new baby on March 1st!

As you can imagine, we are overjoyed that our family is growing!

I'm 13 weeks along, and just turned a major corner (I hope!) from the nausea, fatigue, and otherwise general listlessness of the first trimester. We've seen several pics of our little one, and he or she sounds strong and is growing right on track, praise the Lord. We'll find out in a little over a month if it is a Miss or Master Gentry kicking Mama's rear in there.

This pregnancy so far has been completely different than Jack's. With him, I was just tired and ate a lot of pizza and hamburgers in the first tri. This time, all I want is chicken. Chicken tacos, fried chicken sandwiches (here's lookin' at you, Chick fi a), and honestly, for about 6 weeks, the thought of diet coke made me immediately ill. After taking 2 sick days in a row, I called the doctor, and she prescribed me some very interesting relief, but that is a post for another day. (It wasn't Zofran.)

Anyway, today is my birthday, and I just had to get on here and share the news that I am so very grateful for. I'm having a wonderful day so far, starting with a dental appointment (oh yes, I really do know how to party, don't I?) followed by a great lunch with my sweet boy.

Now that I'm feeling better, I really do hope to be back on more often!

  6. Woohoo! I'm curious to hear what your doctor prescribed for your nausea relief because I swear I tried EVERYTHING when I was pregnant with Anna. I wore Sea Bands for 3 months straight (even in the shower).

    I'm SO glad you're feeling better, and I hope the mystery cure worked as well as Zofran!!! Zofran, I'm convinced, is a gift straight from heaven. God bless whoever invented it!
